February Projects!

I'm feeling the optimism at this time of the month...will see what happens by the end of the month. I'm going to try not to bite off more than I can chew, so here are my modest goals:

Catching up on my Schnibbles and staying on track! So, I've got Tuffets to make, followed by a Madeline and a Sunday Best-still waiting on charm packs to arrive.

Then I want to put together my Butterfly Fling quilt. I've had the fabric for some time and know just what I'm doing with it, now I just have to actually DO it!

So here's to a productive February for everyone out there! Good luck!

Hello February!

Well, February is here! Super Bowl is less than a week away, the Olympics are coming, school valentine's parties need attention, and my tax pile is looming large on my desk!

So, what am I doing, you not preparing for a super bowl party, not crafting super cute valentinesy items, and, no, of course I've not started my taxes...We're repainting our bedroom and bathroom...what else????

This project started last spring when I decided that I was sick of our bedding and needed a change. So, I made a huge quilt for the bed, a wallhanging, bought new sheets and towels, shopped for cute knick knacks, prepared things for the walls, and even bought the paint. And, that's been the story ever since, with absolutely no painting.

My husband is having shoulder surgery next week, and as he is the painter extraordinaire in our home, our bedroom either needs to get done NOW or what several more months! You'll never guess what my vote was for....well it seems victory is mine...assuming we actually finish the painting and get everything put back before next Tuesday morning at 9 am.

Will post more pictures as the adventure unfolds!

As for what else we've been doing...

Preparing to walk the plank occurs regularly at our house!

Meeting some gymnastics celebs at DU-Joey Hagerty and Alicia Sacramone!

Finally finishing my Schnibble from November!

Working on a few of my own projects, too!

So Happy February everyone! What are you busy doing?
